American Eagle Outfitters Holiday Nail Set Review and Swatches!

Hi everyone!

THE POLISH INFLUENZA IS MOVING. CLICK HERE TO BE REDIRECTED.

bottle

 

I don’t know about you, but I am NOT about Black Friday shopping. I just don’t feel like fighting people at midnight to get some sort of electronic or other high ticket either. I’m definitely more of a Cyber Monday girl. I can get good sales from my bedroom, and have it delivered. So yesterday, I used my time not spent shopping to swatch nail polish. One of the sets I swatched was a four-piece nail polish set I picked up from American Eagle last weekend. It originally retailed for $24.50, but on sale, I got it for $17.00, and with a giftcard, it was virtually free! What drew me into the pink-themed set was the full-sized flaky glitter. I couldn’t say no!

All four polishes in the set are nice and easy to apply; none are too thick or too thin. They’re big 5 free (no toluene, formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate, formaldehyde resin, and camphor), which is really nice considering it isn’t a major brand. In fact, this is the first time I’ve seen nail polish at American Eagle. The polishes all radiate that “holiday feeling”, and would make a perfect gift for that nail polish lover in your life! So let’s get started on the review!

Bubbles and Baubles is what I would describe as a ballerina pink creme. It’s a very pale almost peachy pink, and on camera it showed up as more white than it actually is. It definitely has that champagne feel, but in a creme color as opposed to the usual shimmer and sparkle. It’s a very classy neutral! It is a bit sheer, but perfectly opaque in 3 coats, which is what I used for pictures below.

Rose-Colored Glasses is a silvery, grayed-out pink sparkler. Though it looks like a texture polish in pictures, it is not. It’s just that sparkly! Surprisingly, all that glitter is completely smooth on the nail- it’s not rough at all! All that glitz just screams Christmas! Pictures below are with 2 coats!

Gold Standard is a beautiful gilded gold shimmer with various sizes of rosy pink hex glitter interspersed throughout. This is so unique, I’ve never seen any color like this! This also applies completely smoothly, and the shine factor is so intense, I had to edit out the glare on my nails so you could see the color better! It’s a stunner in real life! Pictures below are 2 coats!

What A Shiner is the flaky polish that drew me towards the set in the first place. Originally, I thought that this polish was going to be a dupe of China Glaze’s Luxe and Lush, but it’s actually far from it. Luxe and Lush has red/orange flashing flakies, while these flakies are all over the color spectrum. They look like icy flecks across my nail- perfect for winter! The flakies are pretty dense in the bottle so placement shouldn’t be too much of an issue. Pictures below are 1 coat of What A Shiner over Bubbles and Baubles.

I’m so happy I bought this set. It’s so festive in a non-traditional way. While the polishes aren’t the traditional Christmas red and green, the pink offers a sophisticated alternative for the less-bold ladies (or for pink lovers!). What do you think of this stunning set? Let me know in the comments below!

The Holiday Nail Polish Set from American Eagle Outfitters retails for $24.50, and can be found at American Eagle stores and on their website, here.

Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Fall 2013 Review And Swatches!

Hi everyone!

So yes, I know it’s Wednesday, and On Wednesdays We Wear Pink, but today, my OWWWP is going to be incorporated into my haul and review! While out running errands at Target yesterday, I FINALLY stumbled into Sally Hansen’s Xtreme Wear Fall 2013 Glitter collection! I have been looking for these EVERYWHERE and none of my local drugstores or beauty supply stores had them. I was actually looking for the Maybelline Brocade collection, but I could not pass these up- I was afraid they’d disappear on me again!

bottles

The fall 2013 Limited Edition glitter collection includes 10 almost indy-like glitter bombs, each with a different base color. My Target only had 6 of the 10 bottles, and since one of them was just another matte black and white glitter, I decided to pass on it. The other 5 I picked up were all the different colors of the rainbow! Formula wise, all of these polishes had a very thin clear base (with the exception of Seal-y String), and required a LARGE amount of glitter placement. The glitter density was less than I expected from looking at the bottle, but still decent. So let’s get started on the review!

Rosey Shooter is a mix of large, medium, and small magenta/red hex glitters, medium and small white hex glitters, small silver glitters, and white bar glitters. It’s got one of the better densities of the glitters I picked up, and looks fantastic over black! This is my “On Wednesdays We Wear Pink” post for the week! Pictures below are 1 coat of Rosey Shooter over 2 coats of Love and Beauty Black.

Glitter Gun is a mix of medium and small gold glitters, small silver hex glitters, large and medium white matte hex glitters, and white bar glitters. This looks like a starry sky on my nails! This is also really dense and applies well to the nail. Pictures below are 1 coat of Glitter Gun over 2 coats of Love and Beauty Black.

Green Rocket is a mix of white, medium, and small matte white hex glitters, medium and small green hex glitters, small silver hex glitters, and white bar glitters. There’s actually more white in this glitter than green, and the glitter was kinda sparse, so this one disappointed me. It’s still pretty though! Pictures below are 1 coat of Green Rocket over Ulta Fuchsiamania.

Artificial, indoor light

Seal-y String is the only polish that I bought that doesn’t have a clear base. It’s a sheer gray-blue base, large silver glitters, small baby blue hex glitters, tiny black glitters, and matte black bar glitter. I’ve heard other bloggers say they’ve found this polish to have large black hex glitters in it too, but I don’t think my bottle has any. How strange. This one isn’t my favorite (personal preference) but it’s still a nice polish! Pictures below are 1 coat of Seal-y String over Rue Beauté 040 (green) and e.l.f. Skinny Jeans (blue).

Frazzle Dazzle is a mix of large, medium, and small bronze hex glitters, some medium, small, and tiny silver hex glitters, and large black bar glitter. I think this one is my favorite of the polishes I picked up! I love the mix of copper and black- it looks superb over the spring green. Pictures below are 1 coat of Frazzle Dazzle over Rue Beauté 063 (brown) and Cover Girl Appletini (green).

I’m so happy I picked these up! I’m a huge glitter fan (as you all know) and these certainly do not disappoint! There are a few purple glitters in this collection that Sally Hansen released, but they weren’t at Target, but if I ever find them, I will most certainly pick them up! What do you think of this collection? Let me know in the comments!

Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Polishes retail for about $2.50 a bottle, and can be found at drugstores, general stores, beauty supply stores, and on their website, here.

MOTD- Rue Beauté “009”

Hello ladies!

Another Monday conquered, thank goodness! It’s dreadful waking up after a 3-day weekend. I feel like my body gets accustomed to my 11 AM wakeup call much faster than it could ever adapt to my normal 6:30 AM alarm. Just 6 days to go before Thanksgiving break though! Almost there!

Today I have a gorgeous silver foil shimmer for you. It’s number 009 from Rue Beauté, and I originally bought it to be my replacement for my rapidly depleting bottle of Sephora by OPI’s Bring on the Snowflakes. While the two have similar qualities, 009 ended up being somewhat different than its Sephora counterpart. 009 is definitely a silver foil finish, and it’s stunning. It’s definitely got some patchiness problems upon application, but smoothes out in 3 coats. It looks like a put an unwrinkled sheet of aluminum foil over my nails! It does have some of the sparkle that BOTS delivers, but it’s more subtle. I really like this polish! Pictures below are 3 coats of 009, no topcoat.

So very very shiny! What do you think of the silver sparkler? Will it be gracing your nails this upcoming holiday season? Let me know in the comments!

Rue Beauté polishes retail for $3.99 a bottle, though are frequently on sale for 2 for $5.00, and are found at Rue 21 stores, and on their website, here.

NYC In a New York Color Minute Topcoats Review and Swatches

Press Sample

Hi everyone!

Recently, with my busy schedule, I have not had the time to do my usual nail art on my nails. There just isn’t time between schoolwork, extracurriculars, and work to take time out of my day for an artistic manicure. It’s disappointing, because there’s nothing I like more than having an intriguing design on my nails. I’m not the kind of person who likes to wear a “plain” manicure (though there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that!) Fortunately, the new NYC In a New York City Special Effects Topcoats provide a quick and easy element of pizzazz to any  manicure, in a flash!

bottles

 

Today, I have two “effects” to show you: the Sparkle Topcoat, and the matte topcoat called Matte Me Crazy. Both come in 0.33 fl. oz. bottles, which should last for PLENTY of manicures. Each has a thin application brush for precision, which especially helps in the glitter placement of the Sparkle topcoat. I was so excited when these came in the mail, so let’s get to the review!

The Sparkle topcoat is a small blue and pink hex glitter mixed with a very fine silver glitter, all in a sheer pink base. It looks very similar to Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear’s Supernova in the bottle, but Supernova isn’t nearly as glitter-dense as this NYC beauty, and Supernova doesn’t have a pink base, either- it’s base is clear. Since the base of the polish is pink, I thought it would look best over other pink polishes (though I also wanted to see it over a blue since there is blue glitter in the polish itself). The colors I chose to test the Sparkle topcoat with are below:

From thumb to pinky: Ulta "Fuchsiamania", Love and Beauty "Pink", Claire's "Hot Stuff", NYC "Empire State Blue", Revlon Scented Parfum "Cotton Candy"

From thumb to pinky: Ulta “Fuchsiamania”, Love and Beauty “Pink”, Claire’s “Hot Stuff”, NYC “Empire State Blue”, Revlon Scented Parfum “Cotton Candy”

Then, I applied one coat of Sparkle topcoat over all of them…

Shade

Shade

Holy glitter Batman! I love this over all of these combos except over Hot Stuff. I think the base is just too coral-y for the cooler pink and blue to really stand out. Now, over Revlon Cotton Candy, this glitter is divine! I also love how the pink is played up over a blue polish base. I can’t wait to experiment with more color combos! Overall, the glitter requires minimal placement, if any at all, and looks great in one coat, though, the more coats you add, the more of a “punch” you’ll give your nails! Formula was nice, not too thick or thin. Love this!

Matte Me Crazy I will admit I was dubious about. I have an Ulta matte topcoat that I got for about $10 in a set of 4, and I really hate it. It turns my nails satin, not matte at all- the shine still peaks through. So when I found out this polish was under $2 at drugstores, I really had my doubts. Nonetheless, I decided to give it a whirl. To fully test it, I picked some really shiny base colors to layer it with:

From thumb to pinky: Fresh Paints "Dragon Lady", Revlon "Scandalous", OPI "A Woman's Prague-ative", Love and Beauty "Peacock", Essie "For the Twill of it"

From thumb to pinky: Fresh Paints “Dragon Lady”, Revlon “Scandalous”, OPI “A Woman’s Prague-ative”, Love and Beauty “Peacock”, Essie “For the Twill of it”

All are super pretty on their own, but let’s see what mattifying them with Matte Me Crazy does…

Shade

Shade

Um, wow. Just wow. I have no words. THIS IS FANTASTIC. Look how matte they all got! I love it over Love and Beauty Peacock because it really brings out the subtle purple duochrome of the polish (which my camera refused to pick up on, but I promise it’s there in real life). And please, do NOT get me started on how much I love Matte Me Crazy over Revlon Scandalous. It really emphasizes the pink hex glitters against the black jelly background. I really love every single one of these pairings! Formula-wise, Matte Me Crazy is pretty identical to Sparkle Topcoat, easy to apply, not too thick or thin, and super fast drying because of its matte nature. A real winner, easily beats Ulta as my favorite topcoat of all time.

I’m in awe at both of these polishes. They seriously blew me away, and far exceeded my expectations of a drugstore brand. They’re worth every penny (and they don’t cost that many pennies, either!) Applause to NYC, you very well might have made me a matte lover. And that is not an easy task to do.

So what do you think of these two special effect polishes? Will they be making their way into your stash in the near future? And are you a fan of nail art? Let me know in the comments!

NYC polishes retail for $0.99-$1.99 a bottle, and can be found at drugstores, Target, and on their website, here.

MOTD- OPI “Live and Let Die”

Hello everyone!

It’s been a good day today, Zoya retweeted my tweet! It’s not really THAT exciting, but hey, I got some attention from a big brand, it’s like reinforcement I’m doing a good job! Every comment/criticism I get helps me improve my blog for YOUR reading enjoyment, so please, keep on reading! I hope you continue to enjoy what I post!

I feel like I’ve been on an OPI kick recently, and more specifically, a James Bond collection kick. So when I decided to pick a green color for today’s mani, I figured I may as well continue the trend and go OPI. The color I’m wearing is called Live and Let Die, and it’s a deep evergreen color. It’s definitely on the blue side of greens, and looks almost navy or black in some lights, but has a beautiful green glow from within. There’s also some gold shimmer under the light which really gives the polish an extra dimension. It applies like a dream and is almost opaque in 1 coat, but I used two for pictures below, no topcoat.

Shade

Of course, since I’m addicted to stamping right now, I had to see what this looked like. I used the random linear design from the M64 Konad plate I showed in yesterday’s post with Sephora by OPI’s Bring on the Snowflakes, a bright, opaque silver shimmer. I love how it turned out! The gold in Live and Let Die and the silver in Bring on the Snowflakes blend together like a metal alloy, I adore it! Pictures are without topcoat.

So what do you think of this polish and this design? Are you a big green fan for fall? Let me know in the comments!

OPI polishes retail for about $9 a bottle, and can be purchased at beauty supply stores, some drugstores, and on their website, here.

MOTD- Zoya “Feifei”

Hi all!

So, as October has arrived, it’s about time the fall colors start making an appearance on my nails! What makes a fall color, you ask? I tend to think of fall colors as more muted than summer colors- definitely no neons here (with the exception being a neon orange for Halloween!). I love sparkles and satins for fall, and gorgeous, warm tones like golds, reds, oranges, and browns. But I also love wintery navys, greens and blues. Fall is really up to your own interpretation, and this is mine!

So, to start the fall trend right, I went immediately to a polish that has been sitting in my untried bin for far too long: Zoya Feifei. Feifei is a beautiful chameleon of a color. The base is a gray-navy, but there are so many flecks that flash different colors in different lights! There’s a permanent silver/gold sparkle running through it, but I’ve also captured purple, red, orange, and green subtle glints! In other words, it’s pure gorgeousness! The only reason I haven’t worn it until now is because it wasn’t really a summer color! Formula-wise, Feifei is a bit sheer, but buildable in 3-4 coats. It’s very fluid, so be careful not to flood your cuticles, but it’s easy to apply and dries quickly. It dries completely smooth despite the amount of fine glitter packed into it. It’s 5 stars, in my book! Pictures below are 3 coats of Feifei with no topcoat.

Look at that pure amazingness! I wish I could have included a picture in the sun, but the weather just wouldn’t cooperate for me today :/ Oh well, what can you do about that?

I really love this color, and Zoya is truly one of my favorite brands. I think their bottle design is clean and polished (haha, polish joke…) and immediately draws in the eye, and the quality of the polish inside is superb! What do you all think of Feifei, or other Zoya polishes? Let me know in the comments!

Feifei was released as a part of the Zoya Diva Fall 2012 collection, and can usually still be found at stores today, but is also available on ebay and Amazon. Zoya polishes retail for $8-$9 a bottle, and can be purchased at salons, beauty supply stores (like Ulta or Sally’s), and on their website, here.

31DC2013 Day 24- Inspired by a Book (The Rainbow Fish)

Hi folks!

Quick post for today because my schedule is crazy busy! I barely had time to do my nails! But I fit it in! All while watching the America’s Cup (GO TEAM ORACLE! If you’re not watching, you’d better tune in tomorrow, it’s going to be an exciting race of sailing!). Maybe that’s why my manicure is nautical themed today…

The book I’ve selected as my inspiration is The Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister. It’s a classic children’s book written to display the joys of sharing with others. Just like I’m doing with my manicure today- sharing it with you!

71tgWvlkodL._SL1023_

I started of with two coats of e.l.f. Skinny Jeans on my pointer finger, middle finger, and pinky, and two coats of e.l.f. Lavender Mist on my thumb and ring finger. On my two accent nails, I used Love and Beauty Black on a toothpick to draw the outlines of fish scales. On the other three nails, I took a makeup sponge torn into little chunks and dabbed on Lavender Mist and Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Blue Me Away in small patches to create depth to the ocean. I finished off those nails with Sinful Colors Snow Me White circles to represent bubbles (as seen on the cover of the book).

To finish off the scale nails, I took Rue Beauté 040, Love and Beauty Red, Lavender Mist, Skinny Jeans, and Sinful Colors Dream On and put drops of each color on a paper plate (which I use as a palette). I mixed a drop of Ulta Glass Slipper (a glass shard topcoat shown here) to each color to give them shimmery effects. I then randomly placed the colors inside the drawn scales. On one scale per nail, I used Sephora by OPI Bring on the Snowflakes to serve as the Rainbow Fish’s iconic silver scale. I sealed in the design with Ulta Color-Enhancing topcoat and my fishy design was finished! Pictures are below!

I hope you guys love this design! Maybe it’ll spark some childhood nostalgia like it did for me!

31DC2013 Day 22- Inspired by a Song! (Bastille- Pompeii)

Hi everyone!

I’m really excited for this look because the song I’ve chosen to be inspired by is probably one of my favorites of all time! I love the group Bastille, and their new album, Bad Blood, has been my obsession since its release. The best song off the album, in my opinion, is Pompeii, a gorgeous song featuring strong vocals. I love to wake up to this in the morning because it just makes my day better! The music video is amazing, check it out here!

I took my inspiration for my nails today from scenes from the music video. The design was done completely freehand with toothpicks, so I’m not going to explain how I drew each design. However, I will include screen grabs to show which scene from the video each nail was inspired by!

31DC2013 Day 21- Inspired by a Color (Emerald)

Hi everyone!

So today, I have something a bit different for you. My inspiration today is from the color emerald (since today’s 31DC2013 challenge is inspired by a color), but there’s a bit of a twist. I picked emerald because it also happens to be the color of my makeup look of the day! Emerald is SUPER on trend this fall. I bet we’ll see a lot of emerald on the red carpet at the Emmy’s tomorrow night! So, I guess today, The Polish Influenza is going to become The Makeup Influenza!

The design I’ve done on my eyes today is kind of a sophisticated grunge look. It features heavy black eyeliner, softened by a bright emerald highlight in the inner corner of the eye. Here is the look!

Eyes1

Yes, those are my eyes 🙂

To achieve the look, I started by covering my lids with Urban Decay Primer Potion. In my opinion, it’s the absolute best eyeshadow primer out there. My eyeshadow lasts all day long with barely any creasing when I wear it! I then took an Essence Long Lasting Eye Pencil in 12 I Have a Green (a gorgeous, sparkly green emerald) and colored in my inner corner, making sure to get in my waterline and tight-line. I then took an e.l.f. Shimmer Eyeliner Pencil in Black and lined the rest of my eyes, smoking it out with my finger to make it look less harsh. PRO TIP: To get a creamy consistency of any eyeliner pencil, hold it over a source of heat (like a flat iron for hair) in order to warm it up first. Just be careful not to burn yourself!

I then took I Have a Green one more time and blended it up from my inner corner onto the inner lid. Over top of that, I took a bright green shimmer color from the BH Cosmetics 120 Palette 1st Edition and used my finger to dab it over I Have a Green, and blended it out with an e.l.f. studio Blending Brush. The green shadow helps to intensify the color of the green eyeliner. On the lower part of my lids, I took the color Gunmetal from the original Urban Decay Naked Palette, and blended it onto my lid with my finger and a blending brush. I finished off the look by applying two coats of Rimmel Scandaleyes Show Off Mascara in 001 Black to both my upper and lower lashes. And voila! Gorgeous eyes ready for a night on the town! 

eyes

This makeup look served as my emerald-themed inspiration for the 31DC2013 today! For my nails, I started out with a base of Sephora by OPI Bring on the Snowflakes, a bright, metallic silver foil shimmer. I only needed one coat despite it being somewhat patchy. I then took Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Nail Color in Emerald City (a shimmery dark emerald) and China Glaze Smoke and Mirrors (from the Hunger Games collection- a deep black with green and blue shimmer running through it) and put little dots of color in random places over the nail. I then took a piece of cellophane and crumpled it up, and used it to spread the polish dots over my nails in a marbled design. The saran wrap nail design is super popular these days, and I love how my take on it turned out! It almost looks like the surface of a precious stone! Pictures below are with OPI Topcoat.

I hope you guys like my attempt at a makeup look today. It probably won’t be a regular thing (unless you want it to be!) but I definitely wanted to try my hand at the beauty guru thing! Hopefully it was a success!

If you like either of the looks I showed you today, please, share them on social media! I always appreciate your amazing support 🙂

Tomorrow’s 31DC2013 challenge is Inspired by a Song. Oh my… please. Leave me some song suggestions. I’m so stumped on this one!

31DC2013 Day 11- Polka Dot Nails!

Hi everyone!

¡Hola amigas!

Today I’m writing this post in both English and Spanish, so I hope all of my readers will enjoy it! It’s day 11 of the 31DC2013, and it’s polka dot day! I think polka dots can get pretty boring pretty fast, so I wanted to do something different and creative to make my design unique. One of my favorite color combos is black and silver, so I knew I wanted to use that as a base. I started off painting my nails 2 coats of Love and Beauty Black. Then, using a toothpick, I painted dots on my nails; the smallest dots at the bottom, and increasingly getting larger as I moved up the nail. The silver I used is Sephora by OPI Bling on the Snowflakes. I decided that the silver and the black weren’t enough though, so I chose one circle per nail, randomly, and painted a hot coral on it to give a pop of color. The coral I used is Pink Ice 086. I love these nails, I think they’re adorable and totally wearable! Pictures below are with no topcoat.

Hoy decidí a escribir esta entrada en español para mis lectores españoles. Espero que les guste 🙂 Hoy es día 11 del desafío de 31 días, y es el día de lunares! Creo que lunares regulares son aburridos… entonces, quise hacer algo diferente. Pues, decidí usar 2 capas de Love and Beauty Black, y después, usé un palillo para pintar círculos con una esmalte plata metálica (Sephora by OPI Bling on the Snowflakes)  en mi uña. Los círculos al inferior del uña son muy pequeños, y, gradualmente, se convirtió a círculos grandes. Después, elegí un círculo aleatorio para pintar con una esmalte coral neón (Pink Ice 086). Y ¡tada! Uñas bonitas para el día de lunares! Picturas debajo no tienen topcoat.
